Poor terribly recessed Kenosha! Crowds are pretty good and luckily it will pull in some more affluent Illinois visitors. Great harbor area with many out of state condo residents. This is an important one to be aware to price accordingly. Residents are mostly blue collar workers that have had severe job cutbacks or hour cutbacks. I'd love to hear comments following this show.

Linda, I think you are being very fair here. Promoters have to realize that they have to be truthful about the venue, the economy, attendance,etc. Promoters have to realize that they should not increase the number of booths to a size that will make it difficult for artist to make a decent amount based on the booth fee. We artists dont like being used by promoters. Of course there are some good promoters too. I did Kenosha about 5 years ago. An average show....not a great show.
